Needs & Wants

November 2019: BOOK OF THE MONTH

Black Friday, Cyper Monday … in the midst of this annual December consumerism spectacle, the PEPELT Team decided to make Needs & Wants our theme for December 2019. We wanted to create a month where we could share picturebooks which would offer moments for children to reflect on their needs and wants and consider families with children struggling to make ends meet, depending on charities and food-banks. Watch our videos for teaching ideas.


Below you will find some more recommendations linked to the theme of Needs & Wants. We have indicated if we think the picturebook is suitable for Younger Primary Learners [YPL], Older Primary Learners [OPL] or All Primary Learners [APL]. We have also linked suitable teaching resources.
